Motherhood Is...{13}a

This week I've got more than one blessing I'm going to share with you, so my posts come in an a and a b version of Motherhood Is. There's a first time for everything, right?!

My first blessing to share this week is that I have a reason to have Easter baskets!

Let's face it, this is the ultimate blessing! To have Easter. To celebrate that Jesus was born to a virgin and then suffered like he did so that our sins could be forgiven. And not just subjected to bullying, or name calling, or something trivial - he died. I was talking to Eden about Easter and what it means and as I was explaining it to her I sort of realized how terrible it really was. Because she's starting to understand what it means to die and realize the finality of the event {we talk about it when it comes to bugs mainly. They're the only things that die on a regular basis in her life} I hesitated to use the word "die" in explaining to her the events of Easter. In thinking about it though, how could you not? Why wouldn't I want her to know the extreme nature of the events that make up Easter? It isn't every day someone dies and then three days later is walking around again! So that was that, we used the word die and hopefully she gets it!
